My Tighe – Designed by Brian Tighe (named The 2006 Imported Knife of the Year)
Canadian knife maker Brian Tighe is a true Renaissance Man, with an array of professional skills including tool and die making, metallurgy, engraving and photography.
Brian’s blade design is unique, with its asymmetrical spine facets, high-hollow grind and deep belly with recurve. The frame-lock folder has an open build with heavy-duty 420J2 stainless steel frames and a 6061 T6 aluminum black spacer. Frames are also bead-blasted. The injection-molded black glass filled nylon scales have a carbon fiber texture. Torx fasteners are used throughout. All models have bronze and lubrous washers at the adjustable blade pivot for fast action.
Dual ramped thumb studs allow the MY Tighe to be quickly opened with either hand, and a removable black stainless steel pocket/gear clip.
It’s hard to ignore any Brian Tighe design, especially these highly personal work knives.Carry one and you will certainly start a conversation among knife fanciers everywhere.
